Description

This is the new PC build for my daily editing rig for my YouTube channel called NeXTech News. The build is totally overkill for 99.9% of people and I know that, but it does increase my video editing productivity, and I am an extreme enthusiast who loves to try the newest thing! I had a blast building this PC primarily because it was cool to see the differences in AMD's X399 platform and Intel's X299 and X99 platform, especially in the building experience. Threadripper might be a massive cpu but AMD nailed the installation process of an LGA socket in my opinion; it takes a little longer to install and requires quite a bit thermal paste but leaves no opportunity to install the cpu incorrectly! The parts of this build and the look of it both were very important to me because this PC appears in almost every one of my YouTube videos as well as being my primary editing rig! The aesthetic of the PC was very important to me that's why I chose black components with LED's to match my Blue and Black NeXTech Theme. I also painted the SLI Bridge and GTX 1080's Blue to also match the theme. Then the last thing I did to match the theme was to configure black and blue cables with cable combs on cablemod's configurator and added blue anti-kink coils to the AIO liquid cooler.

Jeez your temps are gonna be like 30c load on cpu and 70c load if not more on gpu hahaha. I like your room +1.

Haha yeah temps are pretty low! Eventually I'll be doing a custom water cooling loop, better have to let my wallet recover first haha!! And thanks a lot! Lots of work went into that office!

Holy cow this is incredible. I love the blue/black color scheme, especially on the 1080s, looks absolutely amazing. This is definitely one of my all-time favorite builds that I've seen on this site. Well done.

Yeah I'm a huge fan of the blue and black because you don't see it as much! You always see the red and black themes! And so glad you think so!

jelly but hats off for the first few guys who have the treadripper build

what was your average power draw for the system?

average temps?

stock voltages it is running

whats was the RAM speed which was stable? I know 3200MHz is not possible ATM only at best i heard its only 2933MHz

any complains about the board?

will we see OC results?

i saw the other Treadripper builds and most complain the CPU install was the hardest to install

was that really hard?

My ram is running at 2933MHZ at 1.25V and I'm going to have another video soon with temp results and overclocking performance. At stock though idle temps are high 30 to low 40 degrees Celsius and under load in the 60's degrees. ANd actually i prefer the installation of this cpu of intel lga. it takes longer and does require screws however there is no chance of someone putting the cpu in wrong because it only slides in one way, where on intel lga you could easily put the cpu into the socket wrong ruining your cpu if your not careful.

i agree

the method of sliding in the CPU and then locking it down is way easier than Intel dropping CPU into socket method.

RAM is still the number one issue with all Ryzen platform be it the mainstream board and the X399 boards

give it a year and everything will be fully sorted out and we will see games uses all the cores and put the 64 PCI-E lanes to good use when i go 3 way RX Vega

Absolutely agree! In a year everything iffy about ryzen will be sorted out! The industry just wasn't quite ready for amd to compete and is now playing catch up!

I would have opted for one less 500GB 850 EVO and instead upgraded the 960 evo 250gb to a 960 PRO 512GB

  • 21 months ago

Yeah i would have done that too, but I had owned all three 850 evo's before buying the 960 evo on this build.

for the VGA, may i ask , why did you choose founders edition over the custom one ?

  • 21 months ago
  • 1 point

For one i already owned them and for two eventually I am switching the whole build to a custom loop eventually and it is easier to get waterblocks for founders cards

lol, I am actually sub'd to you. Curious though, what did you use to cove up the PSU?

  • 17 months ago

I printed on the backside of the plexi glass to hide the psu

Love this build but I just can't stand the AIO, it's so cheap looking imo. The block has like a crappy 5$ t-shirt design. It's nothing like an elegant Kracken, an EK custom block or even a corsair AIO.

Other than that though, this build is awesome. I also love the in-office setup, looks great!

Yeah the aio honestly was picked primarily because of budget. I really wanted to do a full custom loop but after spending as much as i did im going to have to wait for my wallet to recover before the aio is replaced with a custom loop, haha!
